Bloom Cycles (acrostic)*

Beyond my window, petunias

Languish in the midday sunshine

Opening with the morning light

Only a few fade by end of day

My eyes observe as they transition

*Note: my mother had an affinity for flowers, so it’s not far reaching that I do as well. Photo was taken by me of my flower box. Enjoy the musical sound of petunias.

*Note: The photo was taken by me, though we don’t get much snow in winter, on this day we did. Winter days can have many faces. When the sun shines, reflecting itself on snowy surfaces it sparkles with beauty. Giving us a sense of peace. Than there is the flip side which I address, an inner feeling of sadness (depression?). The weather like people has its mood swings. The music and video are well suited. I hope you watch it through to the end. 🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

Love’s Vivid Dream *

she stood silently

on the precipice,

listening to the wind.

trees swaying

too its rhythm

in spontaneous

movement,

rooted as they were.

she could not

help herself,

embracing

thoughts of

His seductive eyes.

Waning, waxing to

meet hers

as He rises above

her once again.

she has long been

captivated by Him,

filling a lingering

desire, she did not

know was lost.

she feels His presence,

gliding down her nape;

her flesh rising

prickling. His cool

touch slowly

moving along her

spine, playing

a lost song created

by Him long

before time began

to move through

an hour glass.

He exposes her

further, her

distinctive fragrance

enthralls Him .

They begin their

slow dance on the

rings of Saturn

soon spinning

our of control.

Jupiter looks on

with an approving

eye at the heavenly

match she made.
